CNN’s Don Lemon recently said that we have to stop demonizing people. And then in the very same breath, demonized white men as the biggest terror threat in the country. And because this is CNN, he won’t pay any price for this. Unreal.
The Hill reports:
Don Lemon: ‘White men’ are biggest terror threat to US, and there is no travel ban on them
CNN anchor Don Lemon declared that “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men,” adding that “there is no travel ban on them” in an exchange that has prompted rebuke from conservatives on social media.
“I keep trying to point out to people and not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity,” Lemon said to fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo during a handoff of their respective programs late Monday. “But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else, someone people who are marching, you know, towards the border, like it’s imminent.”
“And the last time they did this, a couple hundred people came and they — you know, most of them did get into the country, most of them tired — you know, got tuckered out before they made it to the border,” he continued.
“So, we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,” Lemon concluded. “There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on — you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban.”

If anyone wants to know why people chant “CNN sucks” at Trump allies, this would be a great place to start.
